Every fancied buying Para Roach‘s entire working studio with all their equipment still in it?
Well now you can, for the cool price of US $600,000 – with the enigmatic American rock outfit launching one of the more bizarre crowdfunding campaigns in anticipation of the release of their new album.
Their studio is just one of the things for sale when you pre-order/fund their new record through crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic. If you choose to simply order the album by itself; there are a number of merchandise bundles available, but it’s once you start to pay up above $250 that things start to get interesting.
For $250, Papa Roach will record an mp3 of the band singing you happy birthday, and for $500 bassist Tobin Esperance or guitarist Jerry Horton will give you a lesson on how to rock as hard as them on the instrument of your choice.
Or perhaps your half-grand is better spent on the fridge from Papa Roach’s studio, signed by the band – but hurry, because this offer may not last if someone buys the whole studio!
Setting you back $750 is Jacoby Shaddix‘s ‘Lovers are Lunatics’ vest, or you could play bubble soccer with the band for $1000. For $2000 you can spend a day in the studio with the band, and then for just $2,500 you can get your hands on the baby prop use on the cover of Papa Roach’s 2002 album Lovehatetradegy.
All pre-orders come with access to “pledger only” bonuses including updates on the new album, videos of the band in the recording studio and exclusive streams of new songs.
